Buganda Road Chief Magistrate’s Court has remanded three terror suspects Katumba Rashid, Luyenjje Najjimu and Kiyemba Arafat to Kitalya prison.

The three were arrested following their attempt to hurt mourners at the burial of late Lt. Gen Paul Lokech on 25/08/2021.

They are charged with; terrorism, unlawful possession of dangerous explosives and belonging to a terrorist organization.

The presiding magistrate Doreen Karungi did not allow the suspects to take plea because the offences against them are capital in nature and only heard by the High Court.

Their lawyer Geoffrey Turyamusiima, told court that his clients had been tortured by security officers while in detention before seeking court to allow them to undress to reveal marks and injuries of torture.

They will return to court on November 19, 2021.

Prosecution contends that the suspects and others still at large at Atimikica Guest House in Pader District without due regard to the safety of others and with an intention of causing death, delivered and placed explosives in a public place.

It is further alleged that the suspects belong to a terrorist organization, ADF, and that on August 26, 2021, they were found in possession of three pieces of electronic detonators, Amonium nitrate (gas), an improvised switch, a jacket, soldiering wires among other items which are all materials for making explosives.
